Welcome to July ...

Welcome to our JULY challenge using TAN or KRAFT on white with wood veneer.

This year we are continuing with using a base colour and allowing you to use any variation of that colour you might like to use - light, dark, colour ranges just so long as we can tell it IS the monthly colour. The only slight difference is this year we require you to do your layout using white cardstock as your base.

We also have a simple monthly criteria for you to follow.

You can use black, dark brown, grey or navy as your accent colour for journaling, titles etc and we will allow green if part of a floral pattern. We'd love to see you take inspiration from this board and incorporate items you see and inspire you.  You may be inspired by the cute animals or have a sweet tooth for ice cream and or toffee.  You may wish to focus on scrapping about your favourite hot drink during Winter or the carousel reminds you of a holiday destination.  You might like to use a lengthy title or use words on your page in another way.  Perhaps using wood grain or wooden embellishments is something you'd like to incorporate into your work. Please mention what inspired you on your entry.

CRITERIA - Please use wood veneer on your layout in some way

and now some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful 2024 team in no particular order.

Amanda Moran (Australia)
Inspired by the drinks. Wood veneer hearts, ladies & chat bubble!

Karen Guy (Australia)
Inspired by the Bunny in the Mood board I found these Easter photos and used Wood veneer paper in strips and for the Title also used lots of Wood veneer embellishments!

Theresa Kamp (Australia)
I have used card stock stripped back to represent bark on a log and Kraft coloured pattern paper pieces. I was inspired by the wooden logs in the photo board as well as the quote in the middle square. My wooden veneers are the round wood circles and also the wooden log pieces. 

Karen Brierley (Australia)
Inspired by the quote and added a text background to my page.

Tracey Beer (Australia)
Inspired by the wood.

Heather Bensley (Australia)

Victoria King (Australia)
This beautiful carousal is in Central Park, New York City

Jane Howden (Australia)
I was inspired by the wood and did another page for my New Zealand album featuring the Maori wood carving workshop I visited.

In 2024 we will have one main prize each month selected by random draw.  If we have over 15 entries I will do an additional prize draw.

 This is open to all entrants so anyone could be a winner.

Plus there will be a special "Admin Choice" winner who will receive an invitation to guest with us next month. 

To enter please visit our Facebook public group White with 1 challenges and put your entry directly into our monthly album under media.

All entries must be new for this challenge and the original work of the entrant. Please remember we are a layout only challenge - cards, OTP or pocket page entries (etc) are not eligible for prizes. Your entry must be submitted on a white cardstock background with the one extra colour added - small amounts of brown, navy or black may be used for contrast and we will allow green if part of a floral pattern. International entries are welcome.
